If the gate is closed 24/7 you can just remove that part of the road from the map...


I've already fixed it. I turned off the turn restrictions.

Learning my routes

Postby julienmason » Thu Jun 28, 2012 7:16 pm

I cannot seem to "train" WAZE to remember my preferred route to work. Though my preferred route is available to me as an alternate, I always see the WAZE default which I do not take.

How do I teach WAZE to use my preferred route rather than the default?

Learning my routes

Postby Hegedusa » Sat Aug 11, 2012 9:38 am

I've noticed, having made almost 5000 corrections. Roads with turns blocked, roundabouts randomly placed 500 yards from the junction, roads not named and littered with one way roads.

Are you sure waze doesn't learn routes? Or at least reduce the "cost" to locations on your way to your destination? This isn't the experience I have. I'll explain:

I regularly drive to one place at different times of day (I called it "work") using my own preferred route. This is west of where I live. Waze seems to have now "learnt" that I prefer that route, and sometimes the alternatives seem quicker. The route uses a major trunk road - the A12.

However, recently, I asked to route to somewhere else, in the other direction, about 50 miles away to the east. Waze took me on part of my regular route to work, via the A12 west of where I live, rather than a junction with the A12 east of where I live actually on the way. This route was a few miles and 10 minutes longer than a better route.

Waze knew about this route because when I asked for other routes, it only listed one, and that that was what I would regard as the proper route.

So in a nutshell, waze shows me an inefficient route that uses part of my way to work, and when I ask to show me routes, it shows me just one route, a sensible one.

So it appears to be behaving as if it attributes a low cost to locations along regular routes, in preference to what it knows to be a correct route. It added only a small percentage to the time and distance travelled. When I tried routing to other locations along the way to the second route, it stopped using the "silly" route when the destination was nearer home.

If you can't legally drive down a road it should either be set as private, or removed completely.

What happens if they're wrong, or name a road and don't check the turn restrictions?

That will only increase the penalty, it won't stop it.

This is a feature, but it's been broken for as long as I can remember.
